PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU START Do not forget to write your name and section number above. You must do all multiple choice Questions and two of the longer problems. If you attempt to do more than two of the longer problems, please, indicate below which two problems you want be counted. Remember that credit will only be given for solutions that Show your work. Do not just write down your result, but Show how you got it. No work shown = no credit. If numbers are required, use g = 10 m/sz. Record your MC answers (by letter A — E) here. No credit will be given, if you do not record your answer here! MCI C MCZ ID MC3 5 MC4 5 Check here, which of the two long problems should be counted: P1 P2 P3 P4 [To be filled in by graderz] Grading scores: MC P1 P2 P3 P4 Total: Multi )le Choice Problems: 5 Points Each l.

The position of an object in an inertial reference frame is given by: x = a + b t+ 0 t2, where t denotes time. If a = "3 m, b = 2 m/s, and c = —l 111/52, you can conclude that: A) The object always moves in the positive x—direction. B) The object is accelerated in the positive x~direction. C) The object comes to rest for a brief moment at I = 2 s. D) The object initially moves in the negative x—direction, but then turns around at t = l s.

A member of the opposing basketball team passes the ball from a height of 2 m at an upward angle of 20° with respect to the horizontal and with a speed of 25 m/s. The ball misses the player for whom the pass was intended and falls to the ground. The Cameron crowd jeers. a) How long does it take from the moment the ball leaves the athlete’s hand for the ball to hit the ground? 13) How far does the ball fly in the horizontal direction before it reaches the ground? 0) At which angle with respect to the horizontal does the ball hit the ground? The followin0 problem is worth 6+8+6 = 20 points: P2. A science fiction writer wants to invent a fictional planet which rotates so fast that the surface gravity at the equator just balances the centripetal force. Assume that the mass of the fictional planet is 3.50 x 1024 kg and its radius is 4250 km, a) Draw the free—body diagrams of a person at the equator and of a person at 45° latitude (half way between the equator and the north pole) b) How long must the period of rotation of the planet be so that the inhabitants of this planet could get a “zero gravity” experience just by traveling to the equator? c) Find the magnitude of the static friction force needed to keep a person standing on the planet’s surface at 45° latitude from sliding toward the equator.

A truck pulls a trailer, which is connected to the truck by a cable, at constant speed up a road that rises at a 10° angle with respect to the horizontal. The truck’s mass is 1800 'ent of kinetic friction of the trailer kg, the trailer has a mass of 600 kg, and the coeffim is 0.12. a) Draw free-body diagrams for the truck and the trailer. Show and label all forces.
